Ted, the only flawed logic I see in your theory is that if more than one guitar was finished on the same day, they would have the same # and therefore it would not be a unique identifier.
Far-fetched hypothetical scenario...
Someone with a guitar with the same # reports it stolen. You're down on your luck and decide to hock your guitar to get rent money. Pawn shop runs a check against police reports and suddenly you're in deep yogurt for trying to pawn a "stolen" guitar.
But Blossom said the guitar was purchased brand new, so this isn't like an older guitar whose year is a total mystery. The maker undoubtedly cannot afford to have a large stock of freshly made guitars sitting around the shop just "aging to perfection" or such.
